Canadians of Asian heritage have helped build our great country. These contributions are important to our past and present, and will help shape Canada's future.
This video highlights prominent Canadians of Asian Heritage such as, Douglas Jung, Adrienne Clarkson, Kim Thuy, Dr. Tak Wah Mak, and Carol Huynh, who among many others have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation we know today.
Canada's cultural diversity strengthens the country socially, politically and economically in innumerable ways. May is Asian Heritage Month. Let's all celebrate!
